Monthly Local Saxophonist Showcase #5 Featuring Hugh Jones – Saturday May 20

When: 2017-05-20

Local Saxophonist and Educator Hugh Jones has been one of the most in demand saxophonists in the St. Louis area for over 20 years now. Hugh graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston in 1992 with a Bachelor of Music Performance, and received a Master of Music degree in 1997 at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville. He has been a staple of Jazz Education in the St. Louis area teaching Jazz at Chaminade College Preparatory School, Westminster Christian Academy, and Crossroads College Preparatory. Hugh also served as adjunct professor in the Jazz department at University of Missouri St. Louis from 2008 to 2014.

Hugh has performed multiple times on saxophone with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, sometimes as a soloist. He has also performed with The Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra, Mulgrew Miller, Bobby Watson, the O’Jays, Petula Clark, the 4 Cities Sax Quartet, and nearly every pro level Big Band in the St. Louis area. You can catch him playing tenor with the Dave Dickey Big Band regularly.

Hugh Jones has been a very good friend of everyone here at Saxquest since our inception, and we are extremely excited to present this performance. You won’t want to miss Hugh Jones performing with one of the best rhythm sections this city has to offer. Please come out on Saturday, May 20 to Saxquest on Cherokee St, from 2pm – 4pm.

The rhythm section will be Adam Maness on piano, Bob Deboo on bass, and Kaleb Kirby on drums.
